Happy New Year!

I pray you all had a very Happy New Years Eve...
in whatever you chose to do!

What did WE choose to do?!
Well - we had a wee bit of serious pre/teen girl drama,
and THEN we took our precious daughter
to a sleep over with a couple of church friends
(instead of her other invite...
which is what brought on all the drama
- not so much from her as from her friend!)
Aaah the joys of being a Mom...
to my own and to her friends, when necessary!?

Anyway - then Dave & I went to hear
one of our favorite bands Locust Street Taxi
at the New Years Eve Street Party downtown
at the Capitol Theater (where I will sit in Row FOUR
to see Brian Regan in a little over a month!*)
They were great... albeit COLD...
& only played for about an hour.
After that we wandered around a bit
& then headed to the Golden Moon for dinner!
(Yep - Darc' - we got the classic Combo Special!)
We hit the store on the way home for a few 'groceries'
and then just relaxed in a nice quiet warm house!
It was so great... we stayed up and watched TV off and on
and finally went to bed around 1:30 or so...
(and got to sleep in today!)

We have to go get Kaye at 11ish & then starts the frantic rush
of trying to get her back on some sort of school schedule
in one short day and TWO long nights?!
She goes back to school on Thursday and has been staying up
super late and sleeping in super late all vacation long?!
I am hoping that the girls did NOT crash early
but actually stayed up all night long and that should help
with attempting to get her to go to bed 'early' tonight
and waking her up early tomorrow
to practice getting ready for school...
(yeah - I am mean like that!?!!)
Maybe I will offer to take her out to breakfast...
that should work! She loves a good trip to the IHOP!?

Anyway - I took a few shots last night...
but it was cold and I soon decided
to keep my hands in my pockets...
At 19 degree's - my fingers were worth more
than a few artsy shots of the street party!
(I assure you!)
Here are the few that I DID take:

Keep in mind, these were taken at about 7ish...
so the party had not really started yet!?
Sadly - we looked oober cute all bundled up and all
- and I didn't get any shots of Dave and/or myself...
and we were back home by the time the fireworks went off
- so no photo's of that either!?
Oh well - to spend the night on our own
was romantic and reminded us of the old days
before we were old and parental and all!? tee hee!

So - to start the New Year off right...
I thought I would leave you
with a few predictions for '08!
And Scrap Happy People!


1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.
9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost.

God whispers in your soul and speaks to your mind.
Sometimes when you don't have time to listen,
He has to throw a brick at you.

It's your choice: Listen to the whisper, or wait for the brick.

Me/ I am hoping to listen to the whisper this year more and more!
(* = Check out the Brian Regan clips on my side bar/music...
there is some NEW material to enjoy!)
